Relaxation is one of the elemental forces that keeps human bodies alive, alongside air, water, fire, and antifire. Ease into your element with today's Groupon: for $82, you get a Spa Sampler Getaway package at emOcean: A Living Well Centre (up to a $165 value) in Lunenburg.
Sourcing their supplies locally and organically whenever possible, emOcean: A Living Well Centre harmonizes ecological awareness with holistic care for the human body. Kick off the spa-service sampler with a swim in the buoyant saltwater lap pool ($10) followed by a pacifying aromatherapy steam shower, including choice of essential oils ($20). Next, choose three of four half-hour services—a manicure, pedicure, facial, and relaxation massage—for a total of 90 personalized tension-melting minutes ($125). Those who select the facial will consult with an aesthetician to choose the products and procedure appropriate for their skin type, but every coddled countenance will enjoy a scalp massage and a Vienna mineral makeup application. Finally soothe taste buds punished by weeks of hot sauce with a refreshing organic fruit smoothie ($10).
Though emOcean: A Living Well Centre sometimes offers discounted packages, this Groupon represents the best available value.
When Rosanne Balsom started emOcean, it was little more than a murky saltwater pool. Today, that crystal-clear swimming hole is the focal point among myriad spa and health services, ranging from massage and cosmetics to physiotherapy and podiatry. Adjacent to glass-fronted infrared saunas, aromatherapy steam showers reinvigorate the senses with warm mist, revitalizing scents, and the lilting giggles of complimentary fairies. Whether feeding guests or powdering recently exfoliated cheeks, the spa’s team keeps an eye on sustainability, using organic cotton robes, locally sourced Laughing Whale Coffee, and soy-based body scrubs.
